The Minnesota General Attorney has filed a lawsuit against two for-profit colleges, claiming they misrepresented the job opportunities that would be available to their criminal justice graduates. On Tuesday, Lori Swanson announced that a suit had been filed against the Minnesota School of Business and Globe University.
Five Globe University students filed a class action lawsuit Wednesday against their for-profit school, alleging that the school lied to students on everything from transferability of its credits to its inferior accreditation. Globe University is a Woodbury, Minn.-based career college offering degrees in 40 program areas, enrolling 7,803 students across 20 locations that include Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
A Minnesota jury has awarded a South Dakota native and former Globe University dean almost $400,000.
